I'm 54 years old and was diagnosed with Lupus (SLE) at the age of 18. After consecutive SLE flares, my kidney function was declining rapidly along with symptoms of fatigue, Joint and muscle pain, and what have you. I was then referred to see a nephrologist, George E. Fischmann, M.D. who has since become my guardian angel.

Dr. Fischmann literally saved my life. I was having severe joint pain which was thought to be due to lower back problems. I also had a fever and was delirious. My son was taking me to a spine specialist to receive a shot of cortisone to reduce the pain. He called Dr. Fischmanns office to have some records transferred to the spine specialist.

There are very few doctors who not only treat your body, but inquire about my mental health, happiness and lifestyle. It's not about prescribing a pill, he gets to know me, family, interests, just to name a few things. He's more than a doctor, he lets me know he, too, has life experiences that have helped create his sensitivity to me.

from Terry in CA March 5, 2018 for George E. Fischmann, MD, FACP

I've been a patient of Dr. Fischmann for the past 25 years. He is an exceptionally fine and caring physician, and I can verify that for sure.
I am a fellow M.D. and am in a position to know these attributes.
I have a lengthy medical history myself, and Dr. Fischmann has demonstrated his skills and empathy on many occasions.
